Student Perspective

May 2, 2016

We woke up early and piled into the busses. I’m not sure if I’m more anxious or excited at this point. Being in the airport has been a surreal feeling, and I’m not sure it has truly kicked in that I will be studying abroad this summer and going overseas for the first time.

Limited cell service is freaking me out, as well as the horror of airports losing luggage — knocks on imaginary wood — this is good, though. I am ready for an adventure as an independent woman who feels she’s taking on the world! This is the biggest adventure yet and it’s quite scary all on my own, but I am ready… I think.

While waiting for this adventure to begin, I am thinking of all I’m going to be doing: the Beatles is really all I’m thinking about. My dream of walking down Abbey Road is coming true! I want to become submerged into the city. I’m ready to take on all that there is to offer. I don’t know what to expect fully yet but I am so ready. I don’t think it’s set in for everyone yet” the excitement… Or it’s just too dang early in the morning.
